Buying vs. Leasing of Commercial Real Estate

Running a commercial enterprise can be a trial by fire for many reasons. Nothing else compares in terms of the challenges business presents and the way it forces one to grow and evolve. There comes a point in the life of most businesses where a very important question must be asked – should my business continue leasing premises or is it time to purchase something more permanent?

Essential services landlords should provide

  There's more to being a landlord than just letting somebody live in a house or a flat in return for money. Landlords do have certain obligations to their tenants, both legally and morally, but unfortunately not all landlords meet these obligations all of the time. They can get away with it because often their tenants wont want to make a fuss. There are several reasons why this could be the case. The tenant may not realise that the landlord is breaking the law. Alternatively, the landlord may not technically be breaking the law, but is still failing to provide the level of service a tenant should expect. In both cases, a tenant might not complain for fear of a rent increase that they cant afford, or worse, eviction. Property management Many landlords choose to work with a property management company. Reputable managers like Hamilton King will provide a full service...

The Bank of England keep the interest rate at a record low of 0.5%

The Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee at its meeting on 8 October voted to maintain Bank Rate at 0.5%. The previous change in Bank Rate was a reduction of 0.5 percentage points to 0.5% on 5 March 2009. Rates have been at 0.5% since March 2009, with the market expecting a small rise early next year. There has been lots of speculation over when the Bank will start to raise rates again. An increase is expected some time in the new year, although some think it could be later this year as the Bank may not want to raise rates close to a general election, scheduled for May 2015. "Overall, our central case still sees the Monetary Policy Committee raising rates next month, not least because we struggle to envisage the committee either beginning to tighten in the first few months of next year, so close to Mays general election, or waiting until...

The UK are a nation of hoarders

For a landlord a storage unit could come in very useful. One tenant may want a property with furniture, the next tenant may want it unfurnished. So having a storage unit would be very useful for these times. It’s important to shop aroun It is a fact that the British people are a nation of hoarders.  Back in the seventies, lock ups were very popular, but this trend has reduced dramatically, this is also the same for garages. There are less houses with garages to store items that families have collected over the years. A nation of shoppers! Also the amount of stuff that people have to store has increased dramatically.
